So, I admit I haven't tried this product. Frankly, I don't need to. I don't like pencils. They don't look natural only my barely-there pale brows and rarely blend with my light auburn hair. BE's Ash was perfect. It didn't go on too dark and it was easy to apply and blend. It didn't cover up the dash of red in my natural brow but gave my brows just a little more depth. I am heartened to see so many others equally disappointed in this decision by BE to remove this product from their line-up. Maybe we'll be heard. Sadly, this isn't the only change in recent weeks and I find myself steering away from BE products in several areas. Unfortunately, I'm making do with a cheaper product from someone else and it's a pain because it's too heavy and I have to put it on very carefully and still wipe half of it off. Frustrating.

When I heard the powder was gone I was really disappointed. I had finally found something that looked really natural and I had gotten good at using it. I have recommended it to all my friends. I was really going to give the pencil a try but after reading all the reviews, there is no way I will throw away my money. Plus the color choices are really limited. Until you bring back the powder I will be using a different product. I use your products exclusively for my face. First time I have ever been disappointed in Bare Escentuals! Please bring back my strawberry honey blond brow powder.
Rated 3 out of 5 by sharlea Brow pencil breaks too often
First, I do like using a pencil vs. a powder, but when the point keeps breaking, it's not worth the price. The taupe color of the roll-up brow pencil worked well for me (I have light brown eyebrows), but it's very thin. Being thin does achieve thin lines when constructing your brow; however, being thin also causes the point to break off when you put any kind of pressure on it. I was constantly having to roll up a new point. As a result, the pencil lasted maybe a month.

Worst day ever! I found out that the brow powder has been discontinued! I am unsure why there would be a need to discontinue such a wonderful product! Everywhere I go, women ask about my eyebrows and what I use! I am now down to the end of my last powder, and I will be finding a different brand for everything. I won't be coming back to bare escentuals until the brow powder does. Very disappointing.

OMG! BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL BROW POWDER KIT, I AM SO SO SO DISAPPOINTED! I have been using it for years and years and this new pencil is just not even close, so so so disappointing. why on earth would YOU STOP CARRYING SUCH A FABULOUS PRODUCT. It was expensive and worth every single cent? I am beyond disappointed in Bare Escentuals. please bring it back and quickly as possible. and e-mail me when you have please! I see I am not the only one who feels this way. thank you!
Rated 1 out of 5 by cfkstar Not excited about this product
I am at the bottom of my eyebrow powder and when i found out that they no longer carry it and changed to a pencil, i was extremely disappointed. Why they discontinue one to make room for another, whatever happened to choice. I CHOOSE the powder. Please bring it back. I now have to hide this from my girls and stretch it until i find another product line that makes a similar product. I have been using BE since 1999 and swear by it, but when you retire things that work - it does not make good business. A happy customer is a returning customer.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Mommyx02 Please bring back my brow powder!
This is a "painted on" look, which is why I LOVED the powder. It was a natural look. I will be changing to a different brand. Very disappointed! This is the first Bare Minerals product I was NOT thrilled to have!
Rated 1 out of 5 by ARDT Please! Bring Back My Powder!
I started using the eyebrow powder, in Dark Blonde/Medium Brown, about 8 years ago. I was excited to try the new pencils but the color does not match and it does not blend. Thank goodness I still have a bit of powder to use. I was going to order more and found out there was no more. I do not mind using the pencil just to define the end of the brow a bit, but for the rest of the brow I can ONLY use the powder. Before BE saved me I had drawn on brows...that looked drawn on. After BE powder I had so many compliments. After I tried the BE pencil my best friend actually made fun of my eyebrows. I was so embarrassed. I don't want to go to a different product line all together, but it looks like other reviewers have only been left with that option.
Please, I beg you, bring back my powder. I thought I was the only one who was this upset. As loyal customers and fans of BE we ask you to be loyal to us. Please do not take away products we love and depend on.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Watson No love! Doesn't deserve any hearts!!
This product is terrible and my discovery that the eyebrow powder and gel was discontinued was extremely upsetting. I tried the pencil and went back to the store to seek an alternative. The sales rep was extremely apologetic and was unsurprised by my emotional reaction to the loss of such wonderful products because she had several complaints daily from customers. She helped me find a shadow to replace the powder and then suggested hair gel as an alternative to the brow gel and provided me with a few mascara wands. The shadow works almost as well and the hair gel (Got2B ultra glued) is a great alternative and it is a fraction of the cost of the brow gel. I hope this helps!!

Makes my brows look fake. I used a pencil for years, but when I found the brow powder I was amazed at how perfect it was and how natural my brows looked. Please, Please bring back the brow powder. I had to go to a bare minerals outlet to find the powder and now mix two colors because they did not have my color. I am hoping that by the time I have used up what I have you will listen to everyone else and bring back the powder. Stop disappointing your loyal customers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sparkster Not as good as the powder
This product is very disappointing. It flakes, crumbles and does not fill in as smoothly as the powder. It takes more time to use it. It's only virtue is the color. The light looks like the dark blonde/medium brown powder. I'll be looking for ways to recreate the powder using shadow and foundation minerals. Won't be buying the pencil. Drug store pencils are more effective than this product. Please bring back the powder.

The brow powder was one of my favorite products. I do not like the new styler! I have to go to another line, which I don't want to... Such a disappointment :-(
Rated 1 out of 5 by onlythirtysix PLEASE BRING BACK THE POWDER BROW COLOR!!!
Why, oh why, oh why would you discontiune such a wonderful product?! I used the brow color 'powder' for many years and LOVED it. It fills in an blends very nicely and give a natural look. The new product does NONE of that!
Please, please, please bring back the previous product! IT WAS WONDERFUL !!!!!
This reminds me of the 'New Coke' product many years ago! As they say, " if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it" !!!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Tigerpaws Don't Like It - Please bring back the brow powder
I don't like the brow pencil styler at all! I have lupus and therefore thin brows. The powder did a GREAT job blending in and looking great all day. The pencil uses a lot of the "lead" to fill in my brows and I'm not able to get it to blend very well, so it looks like I drew on my eyebrows. Please bring the powder back, I thought that maybe one of the brown eyeshadows would work, but all of them seemed to have a little "sparkle" to them that wouldn't look good on brows. You can keep the Brow Styler for those that like it, but please bring back the powder for those of us who love that product.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ellen BRING THE BROW POWDER BACK!!!
I can't believe the brow powder has been discontinued. As all the other reviews have stated, the "new" styler is not worth the money. It doesn't come close to what the powder did and, for me, the dark blonde was PERFECT. Need I say more. . . . .
Rated 1 out of 5 by dwickedgirl Please bring back the brow powder
I have been using the brow powder for years and I loved it. I was told this would be just as good and it's just like other pencils. No it is not waxy but it looks like I drew on my eyebrows. I liked how the powder looked natural and your eye brows never looked fake. Please bring back the powder because I will have to go to a different line for my eyebrows.
Rated 1 out of 5 by buyer brow styler
I was running out of the brow powder I have been using for the last couple of years and was anxious to replace the product when I discovered BareMinerals didn't make it any more. I was desperate so I bought the brow styler with the understanding I could return it if it didn't work for me. I tried it once and it did not work at all like the light blonde brow shade I had been using. I have thin eyebrows and I need something that makes the brow look fuller and natural. The brow styler just cannot do it. Based upon many other reviewers, many bare minerals customers are very unhappy that our product is no longer available. I don't understand why such a popular product would be discontinued. I am hoping your company will correct this mistake. In the meantime, in order to fill in my eyebrows I've had to purchase a product from another company. I've been very pleased with bare minerals and would rather not buy a different line of makeup. Please, please bring back the brow color in the dark blond shade. It is a staple of my daily make up regimen and I'd be happy to be able to purchase it again. Thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kathypa Bring back powder
Imagine my surprise when I found out you discontinued the powder for the brows. I tried this new style product in another brand and hated it, so I came back to bare minerals for the brow powder. Well, this just won't do for me. This won't be any better than the other brand. Please bring back the powder as it goes on well and stays on all day. Not really interested in something that is supposedly new and improved but isn't really.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Louwho Please bring back your powder!
I must admit, a long long time ago I used the Eyebrow Pencil. I loved it until I met the powder and had fully switched my makeup line to BE. I have never looked back until recently when I went in to get more powder and found out this pencil was it's replacement. I left the store very disappointed and frustrated. I always get compliments on how great my brows looked and when I found out I was going back in time..... I wasn't happy. I ended up going to another brand for their eyebrow powder and love it, sadly to say. I really hope you (BE) are listening to these reviews and bring back our powder! I love your products and that was one you should *never* have done away with! Please please please bring it back :) Sincerly ~ BEPowderLovers!

I have tried to like this product, but it just doesn't provide the natural look the powder and brush do! I will have to look somewhere else, I guess...
Rated 1 out of 5 by matildagirl How disappointing!
Argh Bare Escentuals! How could you do this?! Deleting the brow powder was a major mistake. Replacing it with this brow pencil was just insane. I gave the pencil a chance and was majorly disappointed.
The coverage is not as natural, it doesn't last very long and the color is off.
Bring back the brow powder!

I always had trouble with my brows because I have such light eyebrows compares to having dark dark brown hair. I went into the store and they showed me the powder and I absolutely fell in love. I was running low so i drove an hour and a half to the nearest store and come to find out they discontinued it!! I was SO irate, but since I love your makeup I got the new "brow styler" I am so miserable with it that I save the little powder I have left for special occasions. I am so disappointed with the styler I honestly wouldn't recommend it for anyone.
Rated 1 out of 5 by RedhairedMom For the sake of redheads, bring back the powder!
This is the first review of a product I've ever written, but I am so mad about the discontinuation of the powder that I had to do something! If I could give this product zero hearts, I would. My daughters and I are redheads and we used the strawberry blonde shade of the powder, which blended wonderfully with our reddish brows. The supposedly universal shades now available are woefully inadequate for redheads. My brows are the wrong shade and look unnatural and drawn on, regardless of how much I use that blending brush--you can't fix the wrong color with a blending brush! I was advised at one of the boutiques to try to find an eye shadow color to match the the old brow powder, but I couldn't find one. I know redheads are a small percentage of the population, but don't we deserve to look like natural beauties too?
Rated 1 out of 5 by MEB22 Please bring back the brow powder!!!
WHY would you discontinue an amazing product like the brow powder and replace it with such an un-natural, un-flattering pencil?!? This pencil is nothing like the natural coverage and look that I could get with the brow powder, no matter how much I blend with a brush. I'm so disappointed and now have to begin my search for other brands that still make brow powders and just hope I can find a color that matched as well as the BE powder did. :(
Rated 1 out of 5 by vvkimbo07 Bring BROW POWDER Back!
I went today to the local bare minerals store today to get a refill of my brow POWDER only to find out it's been discontinued! But wait...we have a pencil the clerk tells me! I don't want a pencil. There's a reason I don't use a pencil. It doesn't look natural. I don't get consistent results. The colors never match. I don't want to look like I painted on my eyebrows. I want my brow POWDER back!!! It's the only way I get consistent, full, and natural looking brows with less effort. The dark blonde/medium brown was perfect for me; it filled in my black eyebrows without darkening them or being off color! Ever since I started using the brow POWDER a year ago, I got so many compliments not just on my fantastic brows but on my overall look! It helped to pull everything together! Because this product was discontinued, I've had to find a similar brow powder from another company. I'm so upset by this that I'm discontinuing my entire bare minerals face regiment (10+ products) all together and finding another company. Why stick with a brand that doesn't stick by it's products?
Rated 5 out of 5 by Georgiasue Best natural brow
I'm a 58 yr old blonde, changing to light brown and some gray. I had the powder 1st, but found the brush was making the tail end of my brow too think or sloppy. LOVE LOVE the pencil. If you feather it lightly, you can make it as thin or thick evenly as you wish, I guess for some it would be nice to have the option to use both, but the pencil is my new fave.my 1/2 thinning brows just light up with this pencil. My hubby dropped it in the open position so I'm crazy to hurry and get more even though I have the powder I want the pencil, just take your time till you get the feathering down and you never switch again

I gave it a fair shot but I must say I truly detest this pencil. The powder gave me such lovely bows and this makes me look like I'm headed for clown school or that I have done nothing at all. Help! Bring me back my beloved powder please!
Rated 1 out of 5 by keob Bring back the brow powder PLEASE!
I have been using Bare Escentuals products for years and love the powder minerals and the natural look. But a brow "pencil" does not give a natural look! The brow powder was amazing - the most natural looking brows I've ever had. I used the brow powder for years and loved it. Please bring it back! Why don't you just offer 2 types of brow liners - pencil and powder? Just let the customers pick which one they like.
Rated 1 out of 5 by JanK Please bring back the powder!
I have been using Bare Minerals for at least 10 years and was stunned to find out that the brow powder was no longer available. I took a chance on the brow pencil, followed all the suggestions on feather stroking, etc. My brows are sparse to none and this pencil just does not work for me. I have had to break my "only Bare Minerals on my face" rule and tried 3 different pencils and powders from other brands and still can't find anything that looks the same as the BM brow powder. Very disappointing!
